Pack up your troubles in your old kit bag – WW1 era dress costume

We were asked to make this lovely WW1 era dress for a song and dance festival solo.  The dress was copied from a photo supplied by our client and was made in a lovely old fashioned print cotton.  The dress was for a song and dance festival solo to “pack up your troubles in your old kit bag”, we even made matching hair ribbons to go with it.  We worked closely with our client to make sure the details were just right and thank you to the performer’s mum for sending in these lovely photos of this performer looking absolutely lovely in her costume .

Customer feedback:

Thank you for you lovely costume that got great compliments from all who saw it!

We can make anything so if you are finding it hard to find a costume then please contact us and we will see if we can help.  You should be realistic about price as when we are making one offs we have to pay the retail price for all materials and we will need to create a custom pattern for your costume which will also be made to measure.  A dress like this would cost in the region of £80 but that does depend on fabric cost , size and whether there are any aspects of the design that mean it will take longer to make.  We can make any style including full length and different styles of apron too, for anything from My fair lady to Mrs Tiggywinkle!
